The National Weather Service has issues a Winter Storm Watch for our area. This is for the following counties: Oxford, Franklin, Somerset, Cumberland, Androscoggin, Kennebec, Waldo, Sagadahoc, Lincoln and Knox.
The flood watches and warnings are in effect throughout the state of Maine and last night flooding claimed the life of a northern Maine man. According to the Maine Warden Service, Paul Oliver, 74, of Caswell in northern Aroostook county, died from drowning in flood waters.
It has been an extremely cold and snow-filled winter and Mainers are bracing for a classic Nor'easter. The National Weather Service currently has a winter storm watch for our area, likely to be upgraded to a winter storm warning as the storm draws closer.
This winter has been brutal. In Maine, we've had an ice storm with many losing power for days, we've had about double the amount of average snowfall and we've had historic cold weather. Maine isn't alone, record cold is gripping the midwest, northeast, and even the deep south.
It was a storm that moved right along and dump a various type of precipitation across the state yesterday afternoon and into the night. There was rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow and the snowfall totals across the state varied greatly. Here's some snowfall totals across Maine.
